Free Virtual Workshops Courtesy of The Friends of Pheasant Branch Conservancy

The Friends of Pheasant Branch Conservancy are partnering with us to host free online writing workshops! Each class has a specific day and time and we will continue to offer the same classes each week until further notice. If there is ongoing interest in one (or more) of the workshops, it may be extended to a workshop series. These classes are funded by the Friends as part of their celebration of their 25th Anniversary!

Let's Write About Food With CHEW

We’ll start with a prompt about food writing and use it as a starting point to discuss food writing, starting with the work of preeminent American food writer M. F. K. Fisher.

This event is inspired by CHEW – Culinary History Enthusiasts of Wisconsin.
